I'm hoping to see this for the bottom six...
Kulemin - McClement - Frattin
Lombardi - Steckel - Brown
But there are very few "locks" this season... I would say the following is what we can expect. But it's so hard to fill in the blanks...
Lupul - ??? - Kessel
JVR - Grabovski - ???
??? - McClement - ???
??? - Steckel - Brown
Kulemin, Lombardi, Connolly, MacArthur, Kadri, Ashton, Frattin, Colborne, Bozak... Have fun with that Randy...
Its hard to think of what the lines will be next season... FA just started and there is still over 2 and a half months till next season. That is if they get their **** together and get the CBA finalized in time. There will be trades to come. but who knows when that will be.
i still like lombo more on the 3rd line.
Kulemin - McClement - Lombo
Brown - Steckel - Komorav/Frattin
I would put frattin in Komarovs spot but if Management doesn't want him on the 4th line then i trade him or send him down. I don't like him on the third line. i think he's a lesser Kulemin and i'd rather have Lombo's speed to compliment that line. If Kule is on the second line then:
Frattin - McClement - Lombo
would be just as good but that would mean that 1 or both of Mac and Timmy are gone. I doubt that happens.
